    Post LeBron James pockets $127 million in salary and endorsements to be named highest paid athlete

    His Lakers failed to make the playoffs and could be headed for a roster overhaul, but LeBron James is still very much the king, financially speaking.

    The 37-year-old NBA superstar ranked atop Sportico's list of the highest-paid athletes for the last 12 months after raking in a reported $127 million in salary and endorsements to edge out international soccer icons Lionel Messi ($122 million) and Cristiano Ronaldo ($115 million). Tennis star Naomi Osaka ranked atop all female athletes, and 20th overall, with $53.2 million in earnings, most of which came from endorsement deals as she missed several tournaments while battling mental health issues.

    Sportico's top-100 list included athletes across 10 sports, who earned an estimated $4.5 billion in salary, winnings, and endorsement deals, which is a 6-percent increase from last year.


    Earnings include salary, winnings, and endorsements

    LeBron James (basketball): $126.9million
    Lionel Messi (soccer): $122million
    Cristiano Ronaldo (soccer): $115million

    That's crazy. I don't even see him in ads much anymore. I guess at this point he just has entire TV shows. I'm surprised Federer is still up there.
